Zatanna VS Scarlet Witch

Ironically both Zatanna and Scarlet Witch are being highlighted in the months of April and May.

Zatanna in Convergence as a part of all female Justice League and Scarlet Witch as a part of the movie: AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Below is a spreadsheet that shows that both heroines have a lot in common with each other.

Both have a long history with their respective team.

Both have been members of other teams.

Both have a long connection to their teams and affiliates of their respective teams.

Both were introduced in the 1960s.


  1. Their Fathers.
             a.  Zatanna's father had been around since the 1938, But most people who would not know John                       Zatara.

            b. Magneto, Scarlet Witch's father has been around since 1963, AND has been a major Villain in                     the Marvel Universe.

2.  Their Beginnings.

          a.  Zatanna, unless the influence of someone or something else, has always been a Heroine. She has                   also proved herself to be a leader in JL Dark.

         b.  Scarlet Witch was a villainess to start and has strayed to the dark side more than once.

Below is a little more detail on these two.

That is all for now.  Go Forth and Do Well ..... Shane
